There were about 2,00 people online last night, most of which were already ranked up to a level 11. I really like the perks, they are different and very interesting.

From what I have heard there are different developpers for this game and then they are back to the COD 4 developpers for COD 6. When I heard I was worried thinking that it would not be as good as 4. Can you pretty much guarantee from your playing time that it is just as enjoyable as last year's game?

Yeah thats what was weird, kinda going backwards IMO. Who announces that the next game is being worked on by someone else when the current one isn't even out yet?

I was definitely worried about it as well. Some of my worries were the ranking system and the graphics. From what I have seen, everything is pretty much the same as COD4 with a WWII setting. I have enjoyed everything I saw so far. All of the buttons are the same as COD4. The difference is the weapons and the atmosphere. I thought the graphics would take a hit, but they haven't at all.

I unlocked the ability to create classes (lvl 4) and noticed the perks are almost exactly the same. There are a few differences, one being the ability to wear a gas mask. Since they don't have stun grenades in World at War (WaW) they have a gas grenade where you get disoriented. the gas mask prevents that from happening.

This year's game also gives you the ability to create many more classes as you level up. I think there is a total of 12 classes you can create.

One thing I also liked was the streak kill abilities. From what I have seen,

3 kill streak - you get radar from a tracking plane
5 kill streak - you get to call an airstrike
7 kill streak - you get to send in a pack of dogs, since choppers didn't exist then. The dogs are effective and can be killed (+2 pts). They definitely do damage too!

I'll post more as I notice more. (Don't forget to hook me up with rep pts)

From what I understand is that Infinity Ward was focusing on 007, Quantum Solice. I read an IGN review and this 007 game uses the COD4 engine. Very interesting.

OK. Sounds good. I basically suck.

There are three maps and they don't seem too huge, unlike the very large COD3 maps. I found most maps in COD3 too dark, but it seems better in 5.

The system is very similar to COD4 when it comes to perks and creating classes. You can add scopes to guns or some other item (forget the name) so it is like a red dot. The weapons seem to do less damage and they fire slower.

There is a learning curve going from COD4 to COD5. It's not as good as COD4, but it is better than COD3. I will give it more time and see what I think. It's too early to say right now, but it feels closer to COD3 than COD4.
